Easy Banana Flapjacks
This clean-eating flapjack recipe contains no refined sugar and is dairy-free and gluten-free (providing you use gluten-free oats). As an added bonus, they are really cheap to make too!
Oats and bananas not only taste brilliant together, they also provide a nutritious, sustained source of energy for the body.
Rolled oats are wholegrains, meaning that none of the nutritional benefits have been removed during processing. Oats contain a type of fibre called beta-glucan which has been shown to play a beneficial role in diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
